The goal of the WIC program is to help keep pregnant women, new mothers, and infants and young children healthy and strong.
- Nutrition education
- Breastfeeding information and support services
- Vouchers for purchase of WIC approved foods including Farmers Market
- Health screening and information about other community services
You or your children may qualify if:
- You are pregnant or just had a baby (up to six months after delivery or if breastfeeding, up to 12 months after delivery), or have a baby or child under the age of five, AND
- You meet the Income Guidelines (many people work and still qualify for WIC), AND
- You are found to have a nutrition or health need that can be helped by WIC foods and nutrition information.
If you currently receive Kinship CARE, W-2, Food Stamps, Badger Care Plus or Medicaid, this may qualify you for WIC regardless of income.
Fathers, guardians, or foster parents may apply for WIC for their children.
